Gray Offshore takes Delivery of 300’ 6000 psf deck barge “Julius” from Conrad Shipyard’s New Deepwater South facility
Gray Offshore 300' X 100' X 20' "Julius" Under Construction
It has been a busy year at Gray Offshore! Since the launch of our first 260' x 72' x 16' ABS Classed Full Ocean Deck Barge "Gwendolyn" in September of 2012, Gray Offshore has been aggressively adding ABS Full Classed Ocean Barges to The Gray Barge Companies existing fleet of over 90 inland vessels! In February, 2013 Gray Offshore took delivery of a second 260' x 72' x 12' ABS Classed Deck Barge "Cordie" and signed a subsequent contract with Conrad Industries to construct The Gray Barge Company's first 300' x 100' x 20', named "Julius" after the company's founder Julius Ralph Gray.
In response to the market's demand to transport heavier cargos, the Julius will be constructed to a uniform deck payload of 6000lbs/ft2. In addition, the barge will feature a full, radial "spoon" bow and will be constructed with corrugated bulkheads. Gray Offshore is scheduled to take delivery of the Julius in February, 2014.
